Remote Working is Not About Why. It’s About When.
1.19 billion people across the globe (34% of the available workforce) are remote for some or all of their schedule. The US has the highest percentage of mobile workers, 75.5%, including office-based mobile workers, non-office based mobile workers, and home-based people. Many organizations’ expansion of remote and mobile workers up to this point has been largely organic, driven by BYOD and employee preferences. Clearly, it’s time to frame the proposition and leverage the approach.

Fundamental Factors for Success.
Clear expectations that are contracted, and solid visibility of performance results work best. There have been debates around the effectiveness of highly collaborative jobs in remote settings. A look at cultural and business process preparedness is warranted.
Remote working clearly is not for everyone. Some employees seek the structure and social aspects of an office environment. Best suited for remote work are people who have experience with and choose the mobile or remote environment.
Engagement platforms for getting work done efficiently, and the inspiration to use them, are compulsory.
